Where to locate non-ArcGIS Rest Service for WAB widget to access

I have developed a WCF rest service for a Web AppBuilder widget to use. I developed it in Visual Studio 2010 on my PC using VB.NET. I tested it with Visual Studio's WCF Test Client. I also tested it by right-clicking the service in Solution Explorer and selecting 'View in Browser', then adding the service function name and parameters to the end of the URL that opens in the browser. (example: http://localhost:port#/ServiceName.svc/ServiceFunction?parameter1=parameter1&parameter2=parameter2)


Now I need to add it to our Server. How do I go about this? Do I copy the solution and paste it to the server's C:\inetpub\wwwroot\myWAB folder? Do I need to save the project in a different format in Visual Studio first? Do I need to register it with ArcGIS (Server Manager, Portal, Map, etc.)?


For some additional context, here is a link to a thread I used to start the rest service: How to query a non-ArcGIS database from WAB? (This thread is sort of a continuation of that one.)


Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
